Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Tustin, CA
If one more person says “You just need to relax” you will scream. You feel incredibly alone, and have no idea who you can turn to or how to even support yourself. You are going back and forth between frustration, grief, and anger. You either have an unexpected diagnosis, or are struggling to get answers. Fertility challenges are the least common perinatal experience talked about. It comes with an incredible amount of shame and guilt and it can feel like the weight of the world is on your should
Fertility challenges are the least common perinatal experience talked about. It comes with an incredible amount of shame and guilt and it can feel like the weight of the world is on your should. Although it might feel like it, you are not alone. It is important to me to provide a safe environment for my clients to talk about these concerns without fear of judgement. I understand that some of these challenges cannot be fixed, but you still do not have to go through these emotions alone.
We are told to just "move through" life transitions and that they are "a natural path in life," but what happens when it feels everything but natural and your expectations and reality just don't match? The amount of questioning that can happen as a result can make you feel crazy. I am here to support my clients through these times and help understand these unexpected emotions that have come up for them.
1 in 7 women experience a perinatal mood and anxiety disorder and that number jumps to 1 in 5 after 4 months postpartum. You are not alone in this and do not have to suffer silently. During my work with my postpartum clients, I provide tools and resources in order to take a holistic approach to treatment. Together we can get you on the other side.
